These steps do not necessarily follow any particular order, but we have to recognize our own feelings before we can honestly communicate with others. Also, we must listen before we try to explain the problem. Then too, you must understand your reason for your explanation and understand the other person’s view as well. The last step should be negotiation because you have developed an understanding relationship that will aid you in coming to
I don’t really like that feeling but I understand that this type of questioning is used to get useful information from the client in order to provided effect services and appropriate treatment. The video provided demonstrates of how to introduce in ASI. I like how the counselor has a chance to explain what the ASI is and how it would be used.
In order to be an affective counselor you must have empathy, show that you caring and concern by your behavior. Having good body positions, building rapport, eye contact and great attending skills inspires affective counseling. Failing to doing so can cause the client to feel uncomfortable and not progress. A counselor should try and meet the client in their shoes. That includes understanding client’s background, religion, culture etc.
For example, coming out of their comfort zone. Also, the client may not be making any progress so the counsellor may want to refer them to a much qualified and skilled counsellor. When referring a client to another counsellor, the counsellor needs to make sure the client has understood about why they are getting referred.
A list by Live Smart Coaching (2012) presents the aim of counseling which are (1) it offers a safe and reflective space for us to bein to make sense of the chaos and worry that we find ourselves in, (2) it enables us to explore more on what troubles us and the past events that caused the present problem, (3) it encourages us to take a look on our thoughts, feelings and behaviors at the moment, (4) it helps us in finding ways of changing our irrational emotions that would take us to a more secure place, and lastly (4) it gives us a change to understand and learn ourselves that will enable us to be in control of our life. In addition, the Japanese Association of Counseling Science identifies the three major goals of counseling as (a) facilitating human growth by emphasizing developmental perspectives, (b) advocating for prevention, and (c) helping to solve practical problems (Grabosky, Ishii & Mase, 2012). It will vary according to need but may be concerned with developmental issues, addressing and resolving specific problems, making decisions, coping with crisis, developing personal insights and knowledge, working through feelings of inner conflict or improving relationships with others (Sheppard,
Children often avoid telling because they are either afraid of a negative reaction from their parents or of being harmed by the abuser & they may delay disclosure until adulthood. Children do not always realize that what they have experienced constitutes abuse. Disclosures often unfold gradually and may be presented in a series of hints. Children might imply something has happened to them without directly stating they were sexually abused. Parents and teachers should suspect child abuse when they notice that child has sudden onset withdrawn behavior or depressive symptoms.
Showing respect with a non-judgmental attitude is required for successful interactions with people of diverse cultures. Understanding their ways which may be different from our own can explain a lot about how they react and deal with the problems they are having. Understanding the different cultural roles and dynamics within diverse families can better mediate familial problems. Understanding other cultures’ feelings about counseling and the stigma it may carry is another important aspect of cultural competence. These are some reasons for having cultural competence.
Some problems that may arise are instability in emotions for clients who may have had bad encounters with the police. The social worker must help the client function with the new emotions of depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, and severe anxiety. A solution that the social worker can implement are supportive therapy and group therapy in a controlled environment. In victim compensation a forensic social worker pro is that they seek to help catapult the victims lives and or victims loved one. Through the monetary funds that are allocated to the victims will be able to try to seek and reestablish normality.
Conflict of personalities with your assigned mentor or preceptor If there is a conflict of personalities with my preceptor, I will have to bring this to the attention of the nurse manager. According to Sliter, Withrow & Jex (2015) personality might predispose some individuals to being hypersensitive to stressors and perception. Also personality might impact individuals’ perceptions of the work environment (p.3). Reassignment to a new preceptor may be necessary to make the learning process
Whilst the theories and beliefs of existentialism and mindfulness are often perceived as being the exact opposite of each other, they are both focused to helping the client move on from difficult time. I.e. these therapies focused on helping the individual self-discover the healing process, leading to improve self-esteem. Both approaches aim to help the client to develop their behaviour and to heal and grow inside as individuals, accepting all the suffering such as fear and sadness and dealing with them; even though their execution is very different in both modalities (Langdridge, 2010, p.1). Existentialism is about acceptance of the fate and face the word with courage and passion. Mindfulness is focus on awareness of the present moment (Barker, 2010, p.).
Mya does not associate or know any gang members. It should be noted that when Mya answered the alcohol consumption question although she said no, her demeanor changed and appeared to smile when answering the question. I suspect this statement to have been false. I spoke to Mr. Don Earlington who told me that Mya has a scheduled hearing for a CHINS hearing for missing school. He confirmed that no paper work need as the school has taken action.
When being honest, a person can see how they truly appear and shape who they can become. The reason I believe that I am honest is that I observe and reflect on the actions I take so that I can properly change myself according to the situation. The integrity of a person is another major part of honesty, where I treat other people the way I want them to treat me. This is another reason why friendships and relationships can last a long time, and also why I am able to easily avoid escalating a situation. This is crucial when handling people who have been physically hurt, as they can become aggressive.
SSW 197 Assignment #2 Kirstin Cain 9000736 The skills I learned within the classroom that I utilized during my practicum were active listening, active listening and active listening, reflection and having empathy. I also used some paraphrasing and summarizing, particularly when a client was disclosing some previous trauma that he believed to have occurred during his childhood (the psychiatrist was uncertain as to whether these were actual events or delusions). I had the opportunity to do role play with an individual wanting to practice making phone calls inquiring about apartments for rent. I used sessional contracting with this individual, did perception checks and had him score his anxiety at various points throughout the role play.
1. What was the issue brought in by the client? What other issues came up as the therapist and client talked? The client initially went to talk about being stressed at school.
Having the knowledge of FLC gives me a foundation for understanding what typical issues stand out in each season of one's life. This helps me to pay special or extra attention to an individual's progress or stagnation in the area, how that presents symptoms in the client, and how it may impact their later growth or progression. For instance, the client is currently at Stage 2 but have yet to prepare to be a mother as she does not want to have any children after marriage. Therefore, she missed some tasks such as making space for children and joining in child rearing, financial and household tasks.
